“Got to try a new place to eat out while moving our kid in (already!!) for school. Enjoyed the quick, friendly service and tasty food. I had Al pastor (seasoned pork) tacos (SOOO GOOD), hubby had pampazo (potato’s and Mexican sausage soaked in a red pepper sauce) and daughter had a simple cheese quesadilla, with drink Horchata. Only mild complaint was no chips to dunk with available queso dip. Will be back!!“

“We were traveling through Alabama and it was time for lunch so we selected Taco Mama because they have "build your own" tacos (2 for $15). I was really impressed with these tacos. The shrimp was fresh and juicy. The corn tortillas were tasty, but fell apart because I over stuffed them with all sorts of free toppings. The tomatillo sauce was flavorful and tangy. These came accompanied by chips, salsa, and a side. I ordered the slaw. It was shredded with carrots and also had a tangy flavor, not at all mayonnesy. I would definitely come back for more.Vegetarian options: Plenty of vegetarian options on the menuWheelchair accessibility: ADA accessible parking and facility“

“A really nice restaurant in Tuscaloosa. The street corn and guacamole are favorites there. Pretty good happy hour, but the margaritas are a tad small for me. However, the food is the attraction and it doesn't disappoint. One issue is they MAY add some idiotic liquor tax. Tell them to delete it. It's bogus!“

Birria Tacos

“I have been looking for a good, authentic Mexican food truck ever since I moved to the Tuscaloosa area in January. I discovered this place just the other day, and I have to say, the birria tacos that I got here were the best I've ever had anywhere! They came with a huge cup of the Consommé soup, which was also delicious! The people working at this food truck were very nice, and the service was quick! You could see them preparing everything and cooking the food in the truck, so you know the food is fresh and made on site. If you're looking for the best authentic Mexican food in Tuscaloosa, be sure to check this place out! I will definitely be trying other menu items in the near future.“

“We own a window tint shop a couple of doors up from this place and we absolutely LOVE it! We think their Mexican tacos are the best- they have many other things on the menu but the tacos are our favorite. We always get the same thing every time and they know us by now and I don't even have to repeat the order. It is a very clean restaurant with great service and we highly encourage you to try it! A word of warning however, unless you REALLY REALLY love hot food, steer clear of the red sauce lol- it will set you on fire. The green sauce has just the right amount of kick and great flavor.“

“We had the Mexican Nachos and the Trio Salad. First of all the chips & salsa were either really good or I was really hungry. Hubby's nachos looked yummy and my Trio Salad was delicious. Honestly preferred the chicken and shrimp over the steak but it was a nice way to try all three. Lots of food and plenty to take home. Finally, Peach Margaritas (2 for me)...definitely hit that spot. Enjoy!!!“
